Sailing to Freedom

??????????Some foreigners think America’s freedoms have made our nation weak. Claude and Gail Klink spent nine years in Saudi Arabia where he ran a fiberglass production plant. “An Egyptian accountant, who was an otherwise educated man, blamed the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks by saying, ‘You have failed to stop people from crossing the [state] borders.’ I responded, ‘You don’t understand freedom.” Claude explained that America is one of the few countries where one doesn’t have to carry ID everywhere to show police. Gail picked up on the weakness theme. ‘“Government does not control the people, so therefore the government is weak,”’ she quoted foreigners. “Well, in our country the government serves at the will of the people. You can do what you want as long as you don’t infringe on other people’s freedoms.”
